This topic describes the steps required to create service accounts for VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Note: Support for GCP is deprecated and will be entirely removed in a future TKGI version.
In order for Kubernetes to create load balancers and attach persistent disks to pods, you must create service accounts with sufficient permissions.
You need separate service accounts for Kubernetes cluster control plane and worker node VMs. VMware recommends configuring each service account with the least permissive privileges and unique credentials.
To create a load balancer in GCP, follow the instructions in Creating a GCP Load Balancer for the TKGI API.
